I should have seen it coming. One of the greatest marketing opportunities is catering to the nostalgia of aging boomers; hence retro Mustangs and Camaros. And how many of them either had a Winnebago in their family, or took a trip in one, or just saw them everywhere in the late 60s and 70s? The Winnebago Tribute allows you to relive that experience, for some $85k ($99k list, which presumably nobody ever pays on ridiculously over-inflated RV MSRPs).
It’s really just a thinly disguised Itasca 26′ coach; the “eyebrow” is just tacked on, unlike the bunk area of yore (1968 model above). But then just about nobody takes these out with kids anyway; it’s for oldsters reliving their memories (or longings), for a price.
The best thing about it? It doesn’t have the horrible swirling graphics that every other motorcoach or trailer inevitably has these days (Airstream excepted). Can we finally get on with that look, after some 20 or more years?
